Teaching and Learning Media
The Competence Centre SignGes - respectively it predecessor DESIRE (Deaf and Sign Language Research Team) - of the RWTH Aachen University implements different applied research projects that aim to convey German Sign Language (DGS) und cultural information specifically concerning the deaf community. The results of these projects have been compiled on a multimodal DVD, which for many years now has been distributed successfully by the team of the Competence Centre. For one, you have to mention here the Learning- and Teaching-Concept „Fliegende Hände“ („Flying Hands“) which conveys German Sign Language and serves as learning material to its respective courses at the RWTH. And further there is also the DVD "German History of the Deaf”.
The software and content will be revised soon and will be available online in the future.
